Today’s “A” shift training was a construction worker that fell and was saved by his safety belay line. Crews went over three different ways to remove this employee from this situation. Crews used a 4:1, 3:1, and a 3:1 piggy back haul systems to raise the construction worker and then used a figure 8 and rappel rack to lower the victim to the ground where Emergency Medical Services took over patient care!
